The dogs love to play with a flirt pole, but today they decided they did not need me to work the controls. I was too busy taking videos anyway! I attached Jaf's stuffed animal to the end of the pole. If you hear chirping, the little stuffed bird tweets when it gets pressure. I purchased the little stuffed bird for under $5 at Tractor Supply. Jaf just turned 6 months old, and Azaan is 25 months.
